  Description     : Perl web site authentication/authorization system

Apache2::SiteControl is a set of perl object-oriented classes that implement a fine-grained security control system for a web-based application. The intent is to provide a clear, easy-to-integrate system that does not require the policies to be written into your application components. It attempts to separate the concerns of how to show and manipulate data from the concerns of who is allowed to view and manipulate data and why.

For example, say your web application is written in HTML::Mason. Your individual "screens" are composed of Mason modules, and you would like to keep those as clean as possible, but decisions have to be made about what to allow as the component is processed. SiteControl attempts to make that as easy as possible.
